Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

Blame the Sleep Deprivation.

Rosie starts school on August 16th.  Guess what I just realized?  I haven't called the endo's office yet for school orders.  The always-crazy-backed-up-in-August endo's office.   Argh.   I thought about this at the beginning of July, figured it was too early to call, and promised myself I'd call later in July.  And now, here it is, August 1st, and I haven't called yet.  Oops.  I dread having to make that call and plead our case tomorrow!
Do I seem familiar? :) This blog is new, but I've been around the DOC for a while, and I've been blogging about other topics for years. I'm AmyMCGS pretty much everywhere online- CWD, Twitter, etc.


  1. Thanks for the reminder! Bean actually has an appointment next Monday, but I feel like I need to make sure they know that we need the school paperwork when we are there because we will also be setting up a 504 for this year...joy, joy!

  2. I hope they get you in!

    I'm sleep deprived too!!!

  3. Sleep? What is this phenomena you speak of?

    School. Ugh.

    We start back on 8/15. I'm not ready.

    Guess we'll both be winging it ;)

  4. Hey Amy! Can you email me your address to mylifeasapancreas@gmail.com so that I can send you the Coco book? Thanks!! :)

  5. We have an appt next monday too. Ugh! All the things we need to remember :/


Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
